Exploring Life’s Origins

The Museum of Science in Boston has a great new website up called Exploring Life’s Origins.  The site, which is visually stunning, showcases the work of Janet Iwasa, a 2006-2008 NSF Discovery Corps Postdoctoral Fellow and Jack Szostak and his laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital.

There are three main sections – A Timeline of Life’s Evolution, Understanding the RNA World and
Building a Protocell.  The Resources for Educators section allows you to download the movies (which are available under a Creative Commons (Non-Commercial, No Derivatives) license – basically they’re free to use for non-commercial purposes as long as you give proper attribution.
